Description

Front: A white envelope with writing in blocky black ink. Includes a blue postage stamp, a black hand stamp, and censor tape.

Back: Includes censor tape in both German and English.

Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: This was the undercover address (generally assumed to have been run by Thomas Cook and Co.) used for mail from Germany to Canada prior to US entry into the war. Mail was sent on from there under separate cover, as evidenced by the lack of re-direction and the presence of Canadian censor tapes on the German covers.
